In this story I met Freddy. Freddy and his class go to an apple orchard. When they got there they met Farmer Bob. Farmer Bob said that if you find the wooden apple youíll win $5.00. So Freddy wants to find the wooden apple. Freddy is worried that Sneaky Max Sellers will get the wooden apple before him because Max likes to cheat. Instead of looking for the apple on his own, Max uses other people. Will Freddy be able to keep Max from cheating?

I like this book because you donít know whatís going to happen next and you get excited because everyone is going on a trip to an apple orchard. I like this book because it reminds me of going to an apple orchard with my family because thatís where Freddy had a class trip. I feel that Freddy is good because he wonít let Sneaky Max Sellers cheat his way to the prize.

I recommend the book Ready Freddy The Apple Orchard to someone who likes contests because it will keep you wondering if Freddy wins the contest. Youíll also like this book if you like rooting for a good guy. Freddy is trying to win the contest honestly but Max wants to win by cheating.
